Kurion, Inc. Key Developments
Kurion, Inc. Wins Contract to Treat Tank Water at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
Jun 9 14
Kurion, Inc. announced it has been awarded a contract by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to deliver a first-of-a-kind, at-tank mobile system to remove strontium from tank water at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Kurion has already delivered the first set of equipment to the plant's staging area for inspection, and plans to ship the balance of equipment in the coming weeks. Kurion expects that the system will be operational this summer. Container is part of the Kurion Mobile Processing System that will be used at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant to remove strontium from approximately 400,000 metric tons of tank water stored at the site. Under the contract, the Kurion Mobile Processing System, or KMPS, will be moved around the site and placed beside tank groups. The system is designed to help TEPCO reduce strontium (Sr) from the hundreds of tanks on-site that contain approximately 400,000 metric tons of water, a volume that is expanding at 400 tons per day. The contract requires that Kurion move rapidly to establish a system that can process up to 300 tons of water per day with more systems possible. Due to the high variability in water contaminant content across the hundreds of tanks, Kurion will work with TEPCO to implement Kaizen principles to constantly improve the system's operations and performance.
Kurion, Inc, Opens Tokyo Office to Support Expanded Role in Cleanup of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
Mar 17 14
Kurion, Inc. announced it opened an office in Tokyo to facilitate the company's growing role in the cleanup at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The new office will be located in the Shimbashi district of Tokyo, within easy walking distance of the respective headquarters of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry (METI) and the International Research Institute for Nuclear Decommissioning (IRID). Kurion anticipates initiating the hiring of administrative and engineering staff shortly.
National Nuclear Laboratory Announces Joint Project with Kurion
Jan 6 14
National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) has just announced a joint project with Kurion, to deploy a full-scale, active, In-Container Vitrification (ICV) plant based on Kurion's GeoMelt(R) technology, at NNL's Central Laboratory on the Sellafield site. NNL is the UK's national laboratory for civil nuclear science and technology, providing advice to government, protecting key skills, supporting industry and delivering national nuclear programmes. NNL is bringing the Kurion GeoMelt process alongside its existing capabilities in thermal waste treatment, based in and around its Central Laboratory on the Sellafield site. Kurion provides technology solutions to minimize and stabilize nuclear and hazardous waste through two families of technologies: separation and stabilization systems. Kurion's separation technology segregates radioactive elements and includes the company's Ion Specific Media, which is currently deployed at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant for cesium removal, and its new Modular Detritiation System to separate tritium from contaminated water. Kurion's stabilization technology converts waste into a leach-resistant glass through vitrification, which is widely recognized as the "gold standard" for nuclear waste disposal.
